Joyful Swimming

It’s not a race, it’s an Excursion!

Tired of doing the “same-old, same-old” swims? Are you searching for a way to slash your triathlon swim time, or simply open for a new swim challenge?

We are the Northwest’s premiere source of open water swim adventures. Since 2011, we’ve been building a world in which all swimmers experience accomplishment, exhilaration, and camaraderie.

“I would never have done open water swimming without your Excursions, Guila! You got me comfortable in a deep dark lake.
Priceless, thank you!”

— Stella, 2014
